Never say never as the guy running Northside has some great ideas and even more ambition (and all the shale off DP) it wouldn't take much to lay a another track at the back of the training track and run a National League team...

He certainly is ( Andrew ) doing a smashing job with the place.... despite having to put up local vandalism at times... It's looking very smart now well done to him for keeping it going

Apparently he's talking to Newcastle, Gateshead and North tyneside Councils about getting land on a long term lease, he knows the financial costs of it all, and says an out of town site is preferable due to the problems with noise. Rob Godfrey is advising him on things due to the success of scunthorpe stadium.

Good article in speedway star, seams like Rob grant got his head screwed on in what he wants, but the big problem is finding somewhere to bring these ideas through, then get planning permission which IMO will be very difficult as a lot of people won't want a speedway/motor sport arena near them, but good luck

trouble is you have to go a long way from Newcastle town to find isolated areas. The thing about the Seimens land over the road is its just a few hundred yards from Brough so if you're getting disturbed by noise now, it'll be more or less the same.

and it's closer to the railway lines, so it'll be a bit noisy anyway.

Does anyone know the legislation for getting a new noise licence, if it was on a brown field site ie industrial would that help get one?
